Your best bet is to exchange it. They should have a 30-day exchange.

I would suspect the door or chassis is out of alignment , keeping the door latches and switches from working properly.

if its the initial start of the heating of the microwave that you are refering to then you may have a damaged keypad this couldve happened at the factory hopefully you still have the reciept and are able to take it back and exchange for a new one.

I have a GE Microwave Model JVM 150 01 , Every thing works but there is no heat , can this be fixed if so what would be the aprox. cost . Thank You Fred My Email is fredjomi@att.net


Hello Fred. When the microwave won't heat, you usually have a defective power diode, high-voltage capacitor, or magnetron. I recommend that you consult with a qualified appliance repair technician for help in determining the problem and deciding what to do about it.
The reality of today, however, is that it rarely pays to repair a microwave oven since you can go to Walmart and get a new one with lots more bells and whistles for 50 dollars and up.

New microwave not starting


Chances are the oven is designed for 60HZ and your supply is 50Hz. This will cause the unit to shut down because it thinks it is not getting the proper "interrupt" signal from the power line. You can check the owner's manual (or model number tag) and the manual for the converter.
